You might get lucky with just a wire fell off. When you get to the motor, clean everything. The reversing must be controlled by the timer, back track all motor wires to the timer, check for dust or any other junk in the timer. Compressed air cans are great.

Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.

Sears Garage Door opener lifts part way and stops. Connected to rail or not. Sensor circuits are working. I read that the RPM sensor would cause this if it's going down but this one is stopping while...

On the rear of the motor unit you will find the 'up force' adjustment. Increase this about 1/4 turn and try. It is also a good time to remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor and it will be obvious if it is going bad. A bad RPM sensor will cause the door to stop when the door is opening and reverse to the open position when closing.

Gl1800 reverse stopped working. I haven't used the bike since last oct/nov and everthing else seems ok. presume reverse must have same fuse as starter motor but not shore. Any ideas?

There is host of problem incured with this. The linkage to the starter motor maybe out of adjustment. The switch push for reverse and the light will come on the dash. That switch can cause problems. The whole switch assembly has to be change/not cheap. Try some WD-40 and work the switch back in forth. Go to Goldwing Goldwing there are good help manuals for all goldwing. To check reverse start motor and leakage require a lot of space.

Heter blower is 50 - 50 to work or not from start up. 'if' it comes on it works for minutes, it will slow down as engine speed increases, back to full when clutch dipped to change gear, then slows down...

Items to check with blower motor:
First there is NO correlation to engine speed and blower motor.
Blower motor may be dying, Blower resistors are defective, on/off switch.
If there is no voltage to the reverse switch, then you have to back probe that wire and see where the open is.
The answer to your question yes there is a common connection. Probably at the fuse box. Like I said earlier you have to back probe wire to reverse switch and find out where it is open. Good luck

My hummer only works in 2nd gear but not in 1st or reverse, do you think it's a switch?

I know it's a switch - what else COULD it be? And NO, you don't need (in all likelihood) a NEW switch. Clean the contacts and you'll be good to go
